Young girls have "a go" at it

As mentioned in Monday's entry on the kolam contest in Mylapore, there were a number of young girls who took part in the kolam drawing, including one who was only 4 years old. It must have been a mixture of pride - showing one's skills with so many admirers, as well as intimidation - seeing the intricately executed designs flowing from the hands of the adults and comparing that to your own asymmetrical kolams. The kids didn't appear phased though and concentrated hard on their design, merrily chatting at times. With continual practice and observation of their mothers making the daily kolams, These young girls will refine their skills as well.
